Connect to Oracle Sales Cloud Data from PowerBuilder

This article demonstrates how to access Oracle Sales Cloud data from PowerBuilder using the CData ADO.NET Provider for Oracle Sales Cloud.

The CData ADO.NET providers are easy-to-use, standards-based controls that can be used from any platform or development technology that supports Microsoft .NET, including PowerBuilder. This article shows how to use the CData ADO.NET Provider for Oracle Sales Cloud in PowerBuilder.

This article shows how to create a basic PowerBuilder application that uses the CData ADO.NET Provider for Oracle Sales Cloud to perform reads and writes.

  1. In a new WPF Window Application solution, add all the Visual Controls needed for the connection properties. Below is a typical connection string:

    HostURL=https://my.host.oraclecloud.com; Username=abc123; Password=abcdef;

    OracleSalesCloud uses Basic authentication over SSL; after setting the following connection properties, you are ready to connect:

    • Username: Set this to the user name that you use to log into your Oracle Cloud service.
    • Password: Set this to your password.
    • HostURL: Set this to the Web address (URL) of your Oracle Cloud service.

  2. Add the DataGrid control from the .NET controls.
  3. Configure the columns of the DataGrid control. Below are several columns from the Account table: <DataGrid AutoGenerateColumns="False" Margin="13,249,12,14" Name="datagrid1" TabIndex="70" ItemsSource="{Binding}"> <DataGrid.Columns> <DataGridTextColumn x:Name="idColumn" Binding="{Binding Path=Id}" Header="Id" Width="SizeToHeader" /> <DataGridTextColumn x:Name="nameColumn" Binding="{Binding Path=OptyId}" Header="OptyId" Width="SizeToHeader" /> ... </DataGrid.Columns> </DataGrid>
  4. Add a reference to the CData ADO.NET Provider for Oracle Sales Cloud assembly.

Connect the DataGrid

Once the visual elements have been configured, you can use standard ADO.NET objects like Connection, Command, and DataAdapter to populate a DataTable with the results of an SQL query:

System.Data.CData.OracleSalesCloud.OracleSalesCloudConnection conn conn = create System.Data.CData.OracleSalesCloud.OracleSalesCloudConnection(connectionString) System.Data.CData.OracleSalesCloud.OracleSalesCloudCommand comm comm = create System.Data.CData.OracleSalesCloud.OracleSalesCloudCommand(command, conn) System.Data.DataTable table table = create System.Data.DataTable System.Data.CData.OracleSalesCloud.OracleSalesCloudDataAdapter dataAdapter dataAdapter = create System.Data.CData.OracleSalesCloud.OracleSalesCloudDataAdapter(comm) dataAdapter.Fill(table) datagrid1.ItemsSource=table.DefaultView

The code above can be used to bind data from the specified query to the DataGrid.
